Setting up your Craft CMS website with StoryChief, but the fields aren't there to be linked?Β 

As we can see in this example, the body field is missing in the StoryChief plugin.

To remedy this, we have to create a new field and link it to the entry type for your articles.

Start adding fields to your Craft CMS

Step 1. In Craft CMS, go to Settings ➜ Fields.

Step 2. The following field types are needed to send over the entirety of your story, create the ones that you still need.

  • Author - type: Users

  • Body - type: Plain Text

  • Cover - type: Assets

  • Excerpt - type: Plain Text

  • Category - type: Categories

  • Tags - type: Tags

Step 3. Go to Settings ➜ Sections. Click on "Edit entry types", followed by the entry type.

Step 4. Now you can design the layout. Drag the newly created field(s) to the layout. Click "Save".

Step 5. The new field will be visible and able to be linked to the StoryChief plugin page. You may need to first click "Update" to refresh the page. Once finished, choose "Save".

πŸŽ‰ You're done! Check out the next steps below for more in-depth guides or follow-up actions.
